Baaeed Leads The Longines WBRR After Lockinge Romp

Baaeed |

Shadwell's brilliant, undefeated Baaeed (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) was given a mark of 125 and now leads the Longines World's Best Racehorse Rankings. The bay made his 4-year-old debut in the G1 Al Shaqab Lockinge S. and ran out a 3 1/4-length victor.

America's Life Is Good (Into Mischief) and crack sprinter Nature Strip (Aus) (Nicconi {Aus}) share second at 124, while Speaker's Corner (Street Sense) sits fourth just one point below. It is a four-way tie for fifth at 122, with Hong Kong wunderkind Golden Sixty (Aus) (Medaglia d'Oro) joined by G1 Cazoo Derby In Memory Of Lester Piggott winner Desert Crown (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}), G3 Brigadier Gerard S. hero Bay Bridge (GB) (New Bay {GB}) and G1 Qatar Prix du Jockey Club winner Valdeni (Fr) (Churchill {Ire}). Hukum (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), the full-brother to Baaeed and a recent winner of the G1 DahlBury Coronation Cup, has been ranked at 121. Three horses were rated 120 in the past month-G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup scorer Alenquer (Fr) (Adlerflug {Ger}), G1 Tokyo Yushun hero Do Deuce (Jpn) (Heart's Cry {Jpn}) and G1 Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas victress Homeless Songs (Ire) (Frankel {GB}).
